These maps show ocean surface wind data for typical months in WINTER, averaged over many years. Scientists refer to these as climatology data. Ocean surface wind direction and strength are shown as arrows. Short arrows indicate lighter winds and longer arrows show stronger winds. The arrows also show the average direction that winds were blowing during that month. These maps are based on data from NOAA's "Live Access to Climate Data" website.
